These possibilities could be

It Chilled the Love of the IE
Two Hated Rivals.
By DONALD ALLEN.
"1 I'M M 'l-H-HHhW-W-M"l"I-I"l'
It was a fact well known in social
circles In Traverse City that Henry
Ilarrington Hawkins and II. Ogdcn
Wlnterbury wcro rivals for tho hand
of Miss Kate Barstow, but It was onlf
known to three or four peoplo that tho
aforosald handsomo young girl had al
ready plighted her troth with Burt
Ilayl, manager of tho big department
ptoro, and that when tho marriage
camo off ho was to havo an Interest 1b
Mr. Hawkins was a young man of
aesthetic tastes. Ho was n law stu
dent and wroto sonnctB to himself, and
his lncomo was $8 a week. Mr. Wln
terbury neither had aesthetic tastes
nor wrote poetry. Ho was employed
by a Arm publishing a stato gazetteer,
and ho therefore called himself n liter
ary man and tried to mako his salary
of $12 per week carry out his asser
tions. If Burt Rayl had been of a Jealous
disposition there would havo been no
rivalry between tho other two, but ho
was not, and as Miss Kate was being
kept In caramels and roses by the
rivalry and as good looking girls are
as prono to mischief ns plainer ones
aho let matters go on.
Sho knew of the rivalry, but took no
notlco of It Both young men were
treated nllke. They had been friends
up to tho occasion of a certain lawn
party, when both fell In love. From
that tlmo on It was enmity. They
passed each other In tho street to glare
and mutter. They sat together In the
Barstow parlor, with tho young lady
making n good third, and Bmlled and
smiled and yet wished each other dead.
If ono got away early In tho evening
for a gamo of croquet with the object
of bis affections tho other waylaid
him on his hgrneward way and hit him
In tho back with stones. If Miss Bar
stow attended a sacred concert with
Mr. Hawkins It was Mr. Wlnterbury's
turn to throw missiles. Their lovo for
tho girl was broad and deep and long
and desperate. Neither of them stop
ped to figure on tho cost of pork or po
tatoes or tho price of house rent. That
would havo been abasing their love.
Things .went on. Things go on even
If pepolo aro In lovo. Traverse City
decided to hold a county fair. All the
big hogs, fat cattle, old ganders, fancy
bedqullts, gigantic pumpkins, over
grown cucumbers and threo legged
calvos In the county were to bo ex
hibited, and ono enterprising Individual
bought tho privilege of setting up t
Ferris wheel on tho grounds.
When tho fair opened, of course
everybody was there. That meant that
Miss Kate Barstow and Mr. Hawkins
and Mr. Wlnterbury were there. It
also meant that when Miss Kate saw
tho Ferris wheel she was much taken
with It and expressed her desire to
mako tho circuit and get n view of the
country for miles around.
Tho rivalry had become desperate by
this time. Each rival felt that a crisis
was at hand. Each proposed to make
that circuit with Miss Kate and to
have his fate Bottled before they had
left tho car.
Now the law student showed his fine
Italian hand. Ho went to the owner of
the wheel and had a Very prlvute con
versation. Later on ho borrowed 20
and passed the bills over to the man.
Tho transaction had hardly been
closed when tho literary edltoi of the
gazetteer appeared. He spent some ten
minutes watching tho machinery oper
ating tho wheel, and then he had n talk
with tho owner.
Thero wero many winks and smiles,
and more money passed. It was after
tho last trotting race that the rivals
and tho girl they loved approached the
wheel. Each Intended to make tho cir
cuit with Miss Kate and leave the
other on tho ground. Each had also
planned that in case ho got left the
fact should not give the other any ad
vantage. On tho contrary, It should be
bad for him. It can't be said that the
girl had an Intuition, but this much Is
certain that In the crowd and crush
around the car sho so managed thnt
Mr. Hawkins had as n partner a very
fut woman whoso husband was a nerv
ous Uttlo man who dared not make the
trip, whllo Mr. Wlnterbury found n Ut
tlo later that his companion was an old
maid of forty or moro who wanted to
fall In love.
Tho rivals wero thirty feet.hlgh when
they discovered tho mlxup. and there
was nothing to do but go onward and
upward. Miss Kato smiled and waved
a hand at them, but that only Increased
tho pain. Tho owner of the wheel hud
been closely watching things, but after
half a mlnuto he slipok his head unci
"Hanged If 1 know what to do. 1 have
forgotten which I was to keep up there.
They havo gone and inls6d themselves
up, and I guess tho boHt thing 1 can do
b to stop tho old machine right now."
Tho "old machine" had made only a
half circuit. Mr. Hawkins and his fut
woman and Mr. Wlnterbury and his
old maid wcro right ut tho top when
somethlug wont wrong with the ma
chinery, and the motion censed. After
half a mlnuto there were loud demands
to know what hud huppond. Tho wheol
man told them as well as bo could.
Borne cog, lovor, cam or ratchet had
jtven oat, and It might bo a full hour
6e'foro that bg "wheel took up Its bIott
ind stately movement again.
"Young man, this is n purty how-de-do!"
exclaimed the fat woman when
ho nows was shouted aloft "Hero I
am up hero half senred to death, and
down thero is my gumuel ulmost In a
"Well, I'm not to blamo for It,' re
plied Mr. Jiawkino.
"I believe you arj. I can sco 'vil
lain written In every line on your
fnco. Lay as much ns tho tip of your
finger on mo and I'll make you ruo it
to tho last day of your life!"
"You shut up and keep quiet!" shout
ed tho young lawyer at her. "Can't
you sco that your hitching around mny
upset this car?"
"I'm a dead woman I know I ami"
sbo walled as oho began to shed tears.
"Didn't I tell you to keep still?"
She sank down in tho bottom of tho
car, crowding his legs until he had t
haul them up, and Mr. Hawkins swore
Recording to Coke and Blackstone.
In tho next car below Mr. Winter
bury and tho old maid were nlso hav
ing some conversation. Ho was a
young man and looked like a good
thing, and her heart went out to him.
As her heart went out she exclaimed:
"What a romantic bower for a pair
of lovers! All around us tho meadows,
overhead tbo sky I I hope you ap
preciate the beautiful."
"I'd appreciate n chance to punch
thnt fellow's head down there!" was
tho savago reply.
"Say not so. I could ride on for
ever." "You may rldo all you please after I
It was an unkind remark, and the old
maid took it so nnd flared up and told
Mr. Wlnterbury that he was evidently
a loafer In dlsgulso and that her broth
er down below would wallop better
manners Into him as soon as the wheel
turned. Then the rivals caught Bight
of each other and began to shake their
flsts and Indulge in epithets. These
things scared the fat woman until she
begnn to shriek and angered tho old
maid until she threatened to stab ber
vls-a-vls with a hatpin if he didn't give
over. Ho gave over, but not until he
"If I ever catch that long nosed
young man on the solid earth I'll rend
him limb from limb, and if hung for it
I'll go to" the gallows with a song on
A thunderstorm had been creeping
up. The owner of the machine didn't
know whether he bad earned his $40
nr not. Ho flnallv decided that ho
hadn't, and, while seemingly Industri
ously at work making repairs, ne ac
complished nothing and left all his
patrons to get wet
There was a strong wind ahead or
tho rain, and the people aloft sat with
their hearts in their mouths. The thun
der roared, and they roared with It
The lightning cut up dldos, and shrieks
rent the air. When the rain came nil
were soaked In a minute. This includ

and they privately Informed Messrs.
Hawkins and Wlnterbury that their
vengeance would be deep and deaaiy
and last through three generations.
The owner of the wheel was a man
who believed In giving full measure for
tho monov. Ho kent the wheel still for
the full time he had upreed upon nnd
then added ten minuten. wy tuat time
tho storm hud ceased und the sun of
Joy shone uguln. Messrs. Huwklns and
Wlnterbury gave him one long, linger
ing look as the wheel came round and
then leaped from their seats and walked
They walked toward and past the girl
of their hearts as she stood smiling be
side her mother, but they didn't see
hor. Thev didn't want to. The thun
derstorm had washed their love away
never to return. Hencerortn no more
caramels, no more roses. It was as if
nothing ever had been nothing but
law and literary work.
An Old English Road.
In Wiltshire, England, a causeway
built and endowed by a market wom
an In 1474 still serves Its purpose of
bringing the neighboring villagers dry
shod Into the ancient market town of
Chippenham. It runs from Chippen
ham cliff to tho top of Wick hill, In
Bremhlll parish, a four and a half
mllo road traversing tho heavy clay
of tho low lying lands on either side
tho Avon. Tho raised stone footway
Is placed high abovo the horse road
and Is kept In good repair today, as It
has been for some 450 years. The
good Maud Heath not only saved
enough to build tho road, but pursued
her trade so wisely that she was able
to leave property In trust for the
maintenance of her road. Chippen
ham was bequeathed to Alfred's
daughter and was one of the manors
permanently hold by Edward tho C"on
fessor. A large annual wool market
Is still held In the summer and a cut
tle buow In the wluter.
Taal Volcano Getting Ugly.

lake of Taal volcano bus become heat

frovlces formed by ourthquukes, is

Inrush of cold water to the crater. A
